We had the original Sesame Street only for one or two years around 1972 over here. Then the actor parts were taken out and replaced by pretty terrible home made scenes, because the original was deemed "too american". Today I suspect that the politics were just too progressive. We didn't loose cookie monster and Kermit this way (they were in the puppet scenes too), but we lost Big Bird. I was a huge Big Bird fan when I was about three. It was hard to part with him at a time without vcd or dvd.
Watching the old clips on youtube is really moving.
I never got to see Olivia, but judging from this clip, she must have been amazing.
